Challenge Overview

The Block by Block Food Insecurity Challenge is a three-month social competition that is open to social innovators, local non-profits, grass roots community efforts and other organizations that have the ability to sustainably deploy innovative approaches to solving critical barriers to food security in their communities.

GuideWell Innovation is partnering with the Florida Blue Foundation and Synapse to launch the challenge in four Florida regions (Central Florida, North Florida/Panhandle, West Coast Florida and South Florida) with regional prizes totaling $6,000. Three finalists from each region will be invited to the Block by Block forum, which is being held October 16-17, at the GuideWell Innovation Center in Orlando. The 12 selected regional finalists will present their approaches and compete for the grand prize of $20,000.
